A senior female policeman leaves her job as chief protection officer at the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
The highly regarded inspector was the first woman to play such a key role in keeping members of the royal family safe.
She played a crucial role by shunning Meghan away from a busy Fiji market due to security concerns.
But last night, after about six months in the position, it was reported that she resigns from Scotland Yard.

It comes after the recent departure of Meghan's personal assistant Melissa Touabti, and amid speculation that private secretary Samantha Cohen will soon leave after 17 years of work for the royal family.
Yesterday evening sources said that the inspector, who is not mentioned, leaves the Metropolitan Police.
Insiders say that although they did not clash with Meghan, it was a challenge for personal protection officers to meet her desire to be seen as "one of the people."

One source said: & # 39; Unlike someone who grew up in the royal family and is used to enjoying good protection from a young age, it can be restrictive. although [Meghan] was a famous actress, she could still do what she wanted in the way of walking freely.
"But in her current role she can not go anywhere without her security team, and that is a tremendous compelling force for an individual like her."
The female head protector, whose departure was reported in The Sunday Times, took over from Sergeant Bill Renshaw, who was head of Security Head Harry and retired last year after more than 30 years of police work.
She first came to public prominence during the tour of the young royal couple in Australia last October, where she was photographed with heels while she was watching the pregnant duchess closely.
And the blonde inspector stepped in during their visit to Fiji when huge crowds greeted Meghan during a solo visit to a market.
The security guard was seen when the duchess was brought to safety shortly after Meghan had whispered something in an employee's ear.

In one photo, the policeman raised her hand to clear the way, and in another she seemed to scan the scene for possible threats.
It is thought that the department for royalties and specialist protection of the Metropolitan Police can try to find another woman to replace the outgoing inspector.
Both the Duchess of Cornwall and the Duchess of Cambridge have female protectors in their teams.
Last night, the Metropolitan Police and Kensington Palace refused to comment.
